Press Review

Attempts by four US congressmen close to the Armenian and Greek
Cypriot lobbies to prevent the US selling air-to-ground SLAM-ER
missile systems have ended in failure. Pentagon officials said that
the congressmen’s objections weren’t enough to block the sales of
the missile systems. The Pentagon made an announcement to Congress
on April 28 about selling 50 AGM-84K air-to-ground SLAM-ER missile
systems to Turkey for the use of Turkish Air Forces. The planned sale
of the project is worth up to $162 million.
